Buffalo Nickels were made in Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco from 1913 to 1938. The first 1913 Buffalo Nickels showed the Buffalo on a mound. Later that year the coin was redesigned to show the Bison on a straight lines base.
The bison was modeled after “Black Diamond” in the New York City Zoo. Buffalo nickels are extremely popular.
#201238: CAC. A virtually perfect example of this popular first year and type 'Buffalo'.
#205695: 1,514 minted but it is likely that some went unsold and were melted at the mint. This issue certainly appears less frequently than the mintage would suggest. This example is fully brilliant with the squared rims and razor sharp strike that is diagnostic of a proof. The surfaces are mark-free and just a couple of very small carbon specks keep this beauty from an even higher grade!
#204004: Virtually mark-free with crisp brilliant luster and a sharp strike.
#138572: A well struck, lustrous Gem from the first year of this popular series.
#117650: Fantastic nearly mark-free surfaces with beautiful crisp luster.
#204160: Fresh and frosty luster with just a subtle hint of color. Fantastic eye appeal. Only 1 coin grades higher at NGC and 1 higher at PCGS.
#204730: CAC approved. Extremely well struck with flashy luster and a light gold and green hue.
#205929: Extremely well struck with flawless surfaces that display rich, brilliant luster.
#204927: Lite golden hue. Mintage of only a scant 1,275 pieces. The matte surfaces and state of preservation allow for extraordinary high eye appeal.
